with solutions. looking closely to solve the bigger problems, medicare social security. at first step, wall street is fine with this. if it was a last step it would not be. >> i want to ask ron brownstein about that in a second. first to you ken stickland. the opponents, i think, were about evenly divided 24-22 against from the two partyies. so, you had the republicans opposing it because they thought inevitably it would lead to tax increases to reduce deficits and democrats were opposed to it because they didn't want to bite the bullet on the kinds of spending cuts discretionary spending cuts from exactly the programs they've long been trying to protect. >> let me give you more on the vote total. i've seen such bipartisanship because an equal amount of democrats and republicans were opposed to this. almost more than half democrats supported it and most republicans rejected it. the president will try to do something similar wan executive order. judd gregg, sponsor of this deficit commission says that's firing with fake bullets, that basically it won't require con

in a competitive marketplace. we want a system in which seniors don't have these huge gaps in their medicare prescription drug coverage. and where medicare itself is on a sounder, financial footing. those are the things that we're fighting for. and i'm not going to stop on that because it's the right thing to do. and, by the way, if you are serious about reducing our deficit and debt, you cannot accomplish it without reforming our health care system because that's what's gobbling up more federal dollars than anything else. i don't understand folks who say they don't want to see government spending out of control and then are fighting reforms that the congressional budget office says would cut a trillion dollars off our deficit over the next two decades. those aren't my numbers. we're never going to stop fighting to cut, we have to rein in deficits. i proposed pay as you go or paygo. that's a big reason we had record surpluses in the 1990s instead of the record deficits that were handed me when i came into office. it's a simple process. it basically says you've got to pay as you go. it's sort

is medicare recipients, beneficiary, don't need health care. they have federally financed health care. people about to retire already have it. people who have private health care already have it and people in massachusetts generally have it. you're asking for people to vote for a federal program on top of that, financial burden on top of that, in addition to the added cost beyond the estimates of the state-level program. so, all the factors, including the terrible economy, do not auger well for the democratic candidate who doesn't know that curt schilling was a pitcher for the red sox. >> that was the most incredible -- >> the final problem. >> you know, candidates are always briefed, presidential candidates are briefed before a debate or town hall meeting on what's the price of milk, how is inflation affecting the average g guy, not that they go through supermarkets themselves most of them. how could she not know curt schilling? >> well, the old question -- you and i do this all the time, asking questions like what do you read, like our colleague katie couric asked sarah palin. clearly, this

its waste. we are looking at fraud in medicare, defense department. very large corporate interests. everything has to be on the table. >> you have real divisions within the democratic party. not just house versus senate now. senate versus senate. liberals versus conservatives. and evan bayh and others facing tough re-elections. do not want to show health care to muscle through on reconciliation. saying why -- what's the magic of 60? we have to do something. yesterday jim clyburn said we should take the consumer protection issues and not try to swallow the senate bill. is health care dead? >> no. well -- if i have anything to say about it -- look, i will tell you what's dead. 45,000 people every single year die because they don't get access to a doctor when they should. we know all about the massachusetts elections. you know what, we have a health care crisis in this country. and i think that if when we end up passing is not as comprehensive as some may have wanted so what. you have to deal with insurance reform, we are fighting for a revolution in primary health care. every america
